The building sector has significant mitigation potential for the climate change and future proofing of buildings is needed.  This unit investigates contemporary building design in the context of its environmental impact. The integration of building structure, envelope, services and fit-out are considered holistically from the perspective of architectural merit and resource sustainability. The use of building design and environmental technology to improve occupant comfort and material use, energy consumption and ventilation performance is explored through case studies and research findings.
